This feature length documentary casts a non-judgmental, unflinching eye on what makes rock icon Rick Springfield's fans as passionate about him today as they were 30 years ago when 'Jessie's Girl' was number one. Not a typical music documentary, the film is a human-interest story about a very unique, lifelong connection between a musician and his fans. Over the years, this relationship has been the source of many dreams being fulfilled. The film also offers a glimpse into the thrill of tapping into our inner teenagers. It's not infatuation. It's not obsession. It's An Affair of the Heart!
